We Remember


March 24, 1927 — October 20, 2021

Lorne went to be with the Lord on October 20, 2021, at the age of 94.

Lorne lived in the lower mainland before moving to Oliver for his retirement, coming to the Okanagan 25 years ago.

He was known as a Ballplayer who played until he was 86, his latest adventure playing seniors slow pitch.

Lorne was predeceased by his siblings George, Dillon, Howard, Chuck, Rueben, May, and Gladys.
